Socialism!!!!

The Georgia Republican Party is upset that Hershel Walker has bout 4 million dollars left over from his 2022 campaign and he won't share it with the Georgia Party (which will, of course, wind up with trump)
Why should Walker share?
That's Socialism.
Hershel grifted hard to get those funds
Pull yourself up by your bootstraps Georgia Republicans.

Senate campaign funds are Federal. They can be refunded to the donor or contributed ($5,000 limit) to another Federal candidate.

Snark aside, didn't Ted Cruz or someone like that get the campaign finance laws changed so the candidate can be fully repaid when he loans his campaign money?

I'm too lazy to search for it, but I know it was a republican shithead and had to do with loaning money to your campaign.

If Herschel is allowed to keep the money under current campaign funding rules, let him keep it.
